"A passionate romance that bridges lifetimes"

Shalie is an immortal faerie with a knack for making ice cream. She and her faerie friend Aurora own an ice cream shop where Shalie dreams up a new flavor everyday. Except when she has a dream about a man, instead of ice cream. Disconcerted about the dream, she remembers her moral soul mate. She met Nikolos when he served under Alexander the Great, but in a time of desperation, she had to give him the recipe for ice cream. At that time, ice cream was viewed as only a food fit for the faeries and other immortals. Therefore, Shalie was punished by the faeires and did not grant Nikolos immortality. Nikolos died, but lived again several hundred years later.

Now, Shalie dreamed about another man. Is this man her soul mate come back or another stranger?

I adored the premise of this story: love that bridges lifetimes. Unfortunately, I did not think the story was well implemented. I liked the flashbacks, but they were, at times, confusing as to whether the current passage was a flashback or in the present. Also, the entire flow of the story seemed disjointed and a bit choppy.

I did enjoy the interaction between Shalie and her soul mate. Their romance was very sweet.

Overall, Frozen Satisfaction is just okay. I kept waiting for that something to click and the story would fit perfectly in place, but it never came.

A Multi- Author Series

For over two millennia, Shalie has forsaken her life as a faerie to wait on Earth for her mortal husband’s rebirths. Twice they’ve shared lifetimes together and although Shalie is shattered when his lives end, she doesn’t regret her decision to remain Earthbound to wait for him. They share a passion so wild, so intimate and so hotly fulfilling that one lifetime together every thousand years is more than enough for Shalie.

But the fey are determined to bring Shalie back into their realm. When a magical male interrupts Shalie’s dreams, bringing with him a wicked excitement that awakens all of Shalie’s wildest cravings, she is torn between the hunger she feels for this mysterious stranger and the intimate passion she has always shared with her mortal beloved.
